Features

ART Pickup System

Our ART pickup system is used on a number of our steel string guitars and has received high acclaim for its superb sound quality, incredible dynamics, and outstanding feedback rejection. We designed the ART System 61 especially for the NTX Series, to faithfully reproduce the tone and dynamics of nylon strings. Combining a number of exclusive technologies, the ART system affords the NTX Series the versatility to accommodate an incredible range of playing styles from fingerstyle to pick to percussive flamenco, all while retaining the natural tone of the guitar.

Newly Developed Contact Pickup

A conventional contact pickup mounted underneath the saddle vibrates freely allowing it to pick up the natural body sound. On the other hand, it can pick up too much body sound resulting in feedback making positioning difficult.

By comparison the ART system used on the NTX Series guitars utilises a multilayer damper in order to absorb excessive vibrations and control feedback. System 61 consists of two pickups mounted on the high and low sides of the guitar, each with its own control to provide the NX Series guitars with flexible tone tailoring.

Newly Developed Preamp System

Complementing the characteristic warmth and full mid-range tone of the nylon string guitar, the System 61 preamp uses Yamaha's class-leading technology to offer an easily controllable, wide tonal range, making the sound of the NTX perfect for any show or playing style.

The preamp offers individual volume control for both pickups, delivering a totally natural sound with robust lows and clear highs. A built-in 3-band EQ offers powerful sound shaping while an on-board tuner provides excellent usability during performance.

Answer

Hi Barnaby,

Thank you for your interest in our NTX Series Electro-Nylon Guitars.

In short, the NTX500 has laminate woods and an effective but straightforward pickup. Laminate woods are formed from a mixture of thin wood slices compressed and glued together - this keeps the cost of making the guitar down but loses the natural resonance of the tonewoods (and so the solid tonewoods of our higher-end models offer far warmer, richer and more detailed tones). The NTX500 still sounds great, but there's a big jump up in tonal quality with our higher-end models.

The NTX700 and NTX900FM add those solid tonewood tops (Engelmann spruce for the NTX900FM; spruce or red cedar for the NTX700) and the brilliant 2-way ART pickup system (which recreates the acoustic tone and avoids the infamous 'twang' associated with electro-acoustic guitars); the NTX900FM has flamed maple back for the back/sides rather than the nato used in the NTX700.

The NTX1200R has all-solid tonewoods - Engelmann spruce for the top, and rosewood for the back and sides. The NTX1200R also has an African mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard.
